Former Haryana Congress President Ashok Tanwar Quits Party Ahead of Haryana Polls


With the Haryana elections to go on floors on October 21, Congress party suffered a blow when its former Haryana party chief Ashok Tanwar resigned from the party over dissatisfaction on distribution of party tickets on Saturday.

Ashok Tanwar in his tweet said, “After long deliberations with party workers and for reasons well known to all Congressman and public, I hereby resign from the primary membership of the Congress.”

Earlier, Tanwar had protested outside the interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s residence in New Delhi after being upset over distribution of party tickets for the Haryana elections.

Tanwar in his resignation letter has cited, “I after several months of consideration tender my resignation from the primary membership of the Congress party, which I nurtured from my sweat and blood. My fight is not personal but against the system which is destroying the grand old party.”

Tanwar had alleged against Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda to the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi over attack on him while he was the state president.
